During a session of General Assembly, commemorating the 70th anniversary of World War II, France has extended its support for India’s permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council. France has declared that it is “vital” and “urgent” to expand the Security Council’s permanent membership to include India, in order to strengthen the legitimacy of the UN in today’s changed world.

“France favors enlarging the Security Council’s both categories of membership, permanent and non-permanent, and supports Germany and Japan, which deserve relief (from the burden of their World War II roles) today, but also India, Brazil and African representation,” said France’s Permanent Representative Francois Delattre.

Through this initiative, France has backed India’s voice to get a permanent seat in the Security Council. During his three-nation tour last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had made a strong pitch for a permanent seat for India in the UN Security Council.

Delattre also focused on the need for Security Council reform. He stated that the second world war made us aware that our capacity for action is related to the legitimacy of our institutions. He further added, “The reform of the Security Council in this respect is more than important, it is urgent, I would say even vital.”

“It is a fact that deserves to be repeated: 70 years after the creation of the United Nations, our world in 2015 does not have much in common with that of 1945,” he said.

Bhagwant S Bishnoi, India’s Deputy Permanent Representative, said, “As we commemorate the end of the Second World War, we also need to take stock of the health of the institutions of global governance that were established in its wake.”

India’s Deputy Permanent Representative in his speech to the General Assembly had quoted Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, and said that Museveni noted that most of the fundamental structures created after World War II by the victorious powers remain unchanged.

Bishnoi also added, “This meeting, therefore, also presents a useful opportunity to underline the need to address what President Museveni referred to as ‘the structural deficiency in the architecture for global security.'”
